" MAKE A NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION: CUT THE CRITCISM, LISTEN TO THE MUSIC."

gee, are you really listening then? I never hated the guy, I felt bad for him. Same with Brent. BOTH of them were bad fits imo but many disagree with me about Brent. I never bad mouthed him when he was alive, I'm just not a fan of the sound or the songs. Same with Brent. Nothing is wrong with that is there? Truth be told I'm not a synthesizer fan at all. I enjoy the piano and can HANDLE keyboards but NOT as a lead instrument. I would have preferred the band kept them subtle or in the background but that's my tastes.

Unlike Vince, I think Brent's sound adapted in. Check out Brent and Drums Jam:

It must have been tough to choose someone who wouldn't get in the way of the glimmer twins -- and be willing to fill in what seemed to be a cursed position!
